Galena Lodge Was a ‘Peanut Stand’ Before It was a Nordic Center
Sunday, December 19, 2021

Galena was a hustling, bustling camp of 700 miners during the 1880s—a time when snows were record-making and avalanches historic, according to the late Pearl Eva Barber. And Barber called the store she ran there years later—now Galena Lodge—“a peanut stand.”

Today that lodge is a bustling center for Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and mountain biking—men and women testing their fitness much as the pioneers tested their constitutions with the daily business of snow shoveling, wood cutting, and hard rock mining.

Learn more about Galena’s contribution to the Wood River Valley and Sun Valley area in today’s Eye on Sun Valley featuring historian John Lundin. The video is chock full of historic photos archived in the Jeanne Rodger Lane Center for Regional History.
